New life

Spring flowers, Canberra

Labouring mother,
as pushing through the darkness;
winter birthing spring.

Out with the old

Luscious spring trees, Canberra

Nature’s spring cleaning:
casting out bony branches;
remains of winter.


Royal Botanical Gardens, Sydney

On cold winter nights—
like rain on a warm spring eve—
a ray of sunshine.

It lives!

Warming up by the fire during winter, Canberra
Warming up by the fire during winter

Though contained, it burns,
embers of memories past,
like fire, jealousy.

Change is coming for us all

Winter sunset, Canberra

Seasons, childish glee,
times change; reality meets,
eats idealism.
